Rosalinda P., 39, is making sure that her family has enough provisions for their daily needs. She is married to Wilfredo P., a driver. They are blessed with four children. She makes sure that she helps her husband earn so that their family can have a better life by managing their small piggery. She has been breeding and selling pigs for ten years.

Rosalinda has been a regular member of the Center for Community Transformation* (CCT) for more than three years now. She regularly attends their weekly fellowship meetings and pays her weekly dues consistently. Because of her good repayment performance with her previous loans, she was able to borrow six times from CCT’s cooperative. The reason why she was consistent in paying her dues was because she used almost all the money she borrowed to buy feed for her pigs. Her business lets her earn a profit of 30,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) per month.

Now with your help, she would like to apply for a loan of 18,000 PHP. She will use this amount as a source of added capital for her expanding business by buying more feed for her increasing number of pigs.

She dreams that she and her husband can save enough money so that her children will finish their studies and find their own career paths.

* All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and make payments on microfinance loans.

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
